Welcome bro!!! Now it's definately going to fun. Let's rock and roll :buttrock:

something like the past cannot wait around forever and always seems to give way for something more exciting and new. in some cases its industrial in other cases its idles. is it his choice to conform? something tells me that he doesnt take interest in this new parasite that has surfaced in his world. he think of how to keep the peace and well being of his friends, the planet's elders. they will need all the help they can get. asking him self what he can do? want to do? finally there is a paralizing feeling that comes over him as he stairs at the memorizing monument this offworlder has erected. the heart and mind wonders for a solution.


sorry for spelling errors.

without much more to say here is my image.

welcome, slav glad to see you again in this challenge good luck, I will be keeping up with your thread!:thumbsup:

09-07-2005, 06:59 AM
Very interesting start bro. I'm liking the idea behind it so far, but you did put to many questions left to be answered. I'm digging that alien like space structure. The dragon is a cool idea too. I know it's your first sketch, so i'll come back later (before i bombard you with neat picky critzs, :twisted: )

cheers mate,

I love the atmosphere and the lighting, Good stuff Slav!:thumbsup:

09-09-2005, 06:33 AM
Hi Slav...nice atmoshphere as everyone else pointed out. Also, only showing part of the spaceship really works, leaving space to imagine the rest. Good luck!

09-09-2005, 06:38 AM
Your concept sketch is giving me goosebumps... simply beautiful. Solid layout and colors, cant wait to see your progress on this image.

09-09-2005, 07:23 AM
That last sketch is lovely.... great lighting and the composition works just right!

So is something coming out of the 'hole'..?

09-09-2005, 10:59 AM

Arc80 : hey man yea i got some of the main things done. i guess i could be more productive. who knows however. much yet to do :D

Squibbit, beelow : thanks man. i guess i am doing something right?

andreasrocha : yea but there is much to do still. the object it self still seems a bit bland and plain i think ill try to fix that as time goes on. i hope that doesnt ruin the atmosphere i have created now.

Mecha Hate Chimp : well i am glad you like it... if that is what you mean by it giving you goosebumps :D i have not got a chance to scan the lines that came before this but ill do that later. in class right now and i dont have all the things i need to get that done anyways.
i did how ever want to change the colors a bit maybe try diffrent color variants... will do that over the weekend see what going to go down ... and if its worth uploading here as an update.

duddlebug : hey thanks, and yea about the hole thing... i am not sure now but originally i wanted to have some kind of space shit that is either docking in there... or some kind of giant arm that is reaching to the ground and minning for minirals. or something of that sort. nothing concrete but some solid ideas that i again will try to see if they work with the image over the week end. :)

yunisirees, NinjaASSN, Baron Impossible, Fahrija, Gonzalo Golpe, pushav : thanks alot guys for dropping in and the showing support. :) much love i show you, yes?

Fiolka Alexandre : thanks alot but i dont know if i want to update till there is something to actually update. i got some things worked out... good advice from the folks @ conceptart.org. at least in the time period between this challenge and the last so i hope i gotten better even if it was by a bit :).


thanks to everyone whom took interest so far in my thread and i hope you all will chack back soon and freaquently. i wanted to say that if there is an idea of how i can make this image better... dont hole back ... if you do find the need to shoot it down pls do so constructivly. comments and crits are incouraged. and i hope to get lots!

ill be back soon ... and by soon i mean i dont know when. but i do hope that i have something to show the next time i come on here. :)

to help me visualize some of the characters i did some sketeches that will not be seen in the final image. However even still i felt the need to see them from all angles. :) enjoy

i have added more scale and a grandure type of sense... or so i hope. he is sort of peeking out of the safety of his home to look on to what is going on to his dearly beloved planet.

09-14-2005, 08:23 PM
realy great drawing!!love ur style.chees.:buttrock:

09-15-2005, 01:17 AM
really nice drawing so far! The image works well, compositionally, just waiting for color, good stuff slav!:thumbsup:

09-15-2005, 01:27 AM
Nice sketches bro. I like the one with the really long ears in profile. The line drawing is looking really good bro :thumbsup: Definately like the composition and it's reading really well. more...more...moooore :bounce:


09-15-2005, 02:41 AM
Hi Slav,

Just checking in:)

Nice touches on your latest sketch. You definitely have "vastness" down.... I specifically like the river valley in the background with that reflection of what sort of looks like a tower with ships taking off beside it. The cloud formation looks great and is just one of many things that I can see that will make me get lost in the beauty of it all. Definitely a nice touch. I can tell this is going to be an incredibly beautiful piece.

09-15-2005, 11:32 AM
xric7 : thanks for dropping in... the support is always welcomed :)

beelow : yea i started to color it but everything is rought right now. but i will update i hope again before friday

arc80 : thanks man... i dont think in the last challenge my composition was quite strong enough to comete... i hope this time around that has changed. allong with many of the other issues i was having.

Mecha Hate Chimp : i am acutally contemplating of putting a city there... but as of right now i am not really that sure. i guess when i get the sky drawn out and the atmosphere hase i will be able to see how much detail i will be able to actually have for the city and if its worth even rendering it out.

-- thanks for all the great support from the few ppl that do choose to stop by regularly :)

09-15-2005, 11:36 AM
wow thats a very nice line art!

looks great, love the style :thumbsup:

09-15-2005, 12:40 PM
as usual you rock.. loveing it so far.

09-15-2005, 01:16 PM
Absolutely gorgeous pencil work, Slav, great to see you here again. I love the character sketches, it's a shame you won't get to see the faces, but good of you to share them anyhow. I think the way you've executed this is really original, in particular the designs of the mech bits. Best of luck to you, i really like this concept so far!

09-15-2005, 01:53 PM
Great pencil work. I love composition, and mix of technology, and jungle. I hope to see more :)

09-15-2005, 02:38 PM
Very nice! I very much like your pencil work as well... looking forward to seeing more.

09-18-2005, 10:24 AM
Holy... Your technical details are amazing... errm, details on machinery and the like. :thumbsup:
very nice idea too!

09-18-2005, 11:14 AM
The composition is more striking now, love it! It makes you wonder, you know.. wanting to take a step inside, and see whats behind the horizon. I'm looking forward to see the coloring :D

09-18-2005, 02:50 PM
Hi Slav. So far looks great. I'm keep close to your project. I love the style from your Mars. :thumbsup:

Good luck
xbo :scream:

09-19-2005, 12:03 AM
Wicked tricky good like expected and wonderfull athmospheric concept. Great pencils, once more a wonderfull work to expect, wish you loadsa fun, best of luck and am awaiting impatiently your next update! keep it up mate, rock on!:thumbsup: :beer::bounce:

09-19-2005, 06:24 PM
calisto,W!L : thanks guys i am been so busy with a server i am running school and this that i think the image needs a bit more time devoted to it. probably next week ill get some work done for you all to see :)

Zepyhri : thank yea it would be a shame but none the less they are in the wip.. and i guess the process is half of the finished product in this case. i have a great idea that i just got sitting here in class.. something like myst rising and breaking up the light and shadow in the bottom and not so much towards where the horizon line is with the ships blasting off... i cant wait to sit down and pump out a few renderings of that... should be very exciting :D

Pawlack, botched, ogar555, 2xbo : thanks for the vote in confidence. i hope i am good enough this time around. i have been trying to improve really hard :(

angwa_falmar : the exact feeling of vastness and awe that i wanted to convay :) i think that is what is spectacular. something gripping and epic that makes you step back for a moment... and just glare with amazement. i just hope i can get there.

the1st_angel : thanks man although i think i said before that this work is not getting as much attention as i would like it due to my hectic schedual... but i hope to have something done for next week and hopefull have the whole thing done by month's end.

-- to everyone thank you soo much for the great comments. little feed but and crits but i guess its going in the right direction and i didnt mess anything up yet :P

you guys rock. and i raise my wacom pen and a glass of imitation cola drink to praise this community and all its members :)

update on the color blending. i think as of right now i have the perfect dawn feel to the image. perhaps redo some of the character's pose... i dont quite like it ... but that's what you get.

knock knock... hello. and good bye.

09-22-2005, 06:58 AM
Wow... Its very-very nice! :thumbsup: I love the atmosphere... Waiting for more... Good luck

09-22-2005, 08:41 AM
I'm not totally sure what's going on here but your compostion is great

09-22-2005, 10:46 AM

09-22-2005, 03:37 PM
Hof, aaron111, sh@ke : thanks guys i dont have much to say since this is not a major update. i overlaying the colors and trying to make this image work from an emotive point of view. i completely redid the character this morning. so ill incorperate them into the next update in a few days :)

thanks again for dropping in.



09-22-2005, 04:57 PM
Slav, Great start, I always love to watch your process. You block in your shapes wonderfully. Nice mood you are creating. Your brush work is always a delight.

09-23-2005, 04:40 AM

09-23-2005, 06:36 AM
nice sketches and WIP! I like the color blending~

09-25-2005, 05:44 AM
The atmosphere is building up great. I freakin love what's going on at the background. It looks so peaceful yet mysterious. Just one question, are the characters suppose to be in shock or surprise?

cheers :thumbsup:

09-25-2005, 06:10 AM
hey there,
thin you have cool idea, maybe colors are a little bit pale
but over all very nice,
good luck :thumbsup:

09-25-2005, 02:59 PM
SideAche : thanks man its a definate boost... i am trying to balance school and this again... easier this time around. i tend to work alot fast and more efficiantly on this. so the results are better and take less time.

beelow : thanks man. thanks alot for dropping by and commenting.

Sean J : thanks alot. and come back soon!

Arc80 : oh yea that was my initial desire to make him in awe... but what you see now in the last update completly changed ... i sat down and redrew the poses of both characters... the main one though i liked the pose so he is not that much diffrent. oh well soon enough you will see :)

Korline : hmm... maybe ill work on bumping up the value of some colors and try to swing away from grey tones... thanks for the crit ... MUCH thanks like you wouldnt believe.


thanks to everyone for stopping by. i am sorry i dont return the favor that much... but i just say that given time i will come and check out everyone's thread whom came to visit!

10-04-2005, 07:53 PM
Oooh, i really like the very subtle contrast in colour temperature and the gesture is definately much much better :thumbsup:
Just a small critzs, about the dude's proportion, if his proportion is similar to human proportion, then you are missing a neck. Just look at where the head connects on the body. The right hand could also be a tad bit bigger too. BUT if this is done in purpose and that's how the alien body is design and looks like, then disregard my critzs :D
Other than that, like your M&S entry, this is, yet again, another one of my favorite pieces here. You went on a different route than your M&S and i have great respect for that.

cheers bro :applause:

10-05-2005, 08:32 AM
Lookin good so far no, crits as of yet, till the next, post...:thumbsup:

10-24-2005, 05:51 PM
archie: hey man well i really dont know what to tell you it started out as a humaniod but i am kind of liking they way it turned out the pants are supposed to be a bit baggy like those jet fighter suits kind of thing. and i thought about making thier forms in general elongated. i am not sure if it will work and ill prolly have to fix some parts of them... but i guess i need to work on the fact that thery are white 1st. i kind of dropped them right form the scan and put general color on them. i dont really like it and i think ill change up the foreground quite a bit.introduce more vivid colors and stay away from greys. i also noticed that i made a mistake when it came to the clouds. well not so much a mistake as a general prefrance. i dont want the clouds to look like they do... but i do have a great idea for how to make them better.

beelow: lol you dont have to have crits for me i am my own worst critic :P but thanks alot for checking every now and again. :)

10-24-2005, 06:25 PM
great work, very nice idea and angle picking, i'm waiting for development :)

10-25-2005, 03:08 AM
very nice progress.love the lighting and composition.:thumbsup: :thumbsup: keep going.i'll look forward to see your next step.cheers.:buttrock:

10-25-2005, 08:41 AM
looking good slav:)i like those cute lil thing on the ground.:scream:

10-27-2005, 07:55 AM
*AHEM* where's the update...? hehe. Just checking to see what's new. Be back again bro.


10-27-2005, 08:21 PM
hey... interesting concept... nice coloring... keep it up mate!:thumbsup:

10-27-2005, 09:54 PM
Slav - It's looking really nice. I like the sense of bright light added by the newer characters put in. IThe figure on the left is harder to read (for me) than some of the earlier comps: The arm behind the head makes for a less readible silhouette. Have you considered moving that arm to the right a bit more so that it is not blocked by the head? Anyhow, good lcuk with it, can't wait to see more!

singing the song of dawn, as it relates to the cries of the withered planet they bestoe doom upon themselves as a race. torn between parasitic and natural life styles the old and new clash.

10-28-2005, 02:40 AM
ori@r.a.m, xric7, sh@ke, Ducklator : thanks alot for the support guys it really means alot. i hope you all come back soon and visit me :D

achie : yea tell me about it... i have been stressing out with school... i found a contract job for a comic book place coloring thier line work... and to be honest i have only sat down to work on this for like 5 hours tonight i am really happy with they direction this is going in now.

walrus : i realised that i had a paradox in the image... so i had to redo the character... i wanted to keep the old/new mech/nature thing going on... and the guy in the jet fighter suit didnt cut it for me at all... even though it was a good rendering i had to scrap it because it didnt work for me :( yea i am kind of sad but integrity is more important. to be honest i would like to think that the crit you made is gone with the previous character... but if there is anything else that strikes you as uneasy please dont hesitate to speak your mind.

with that siad i finally got rid of alot of greys in the image... and am on the right track. i hope to stay that way now with the characters redone... and color finally working for me. :)


10-28-2005, 05:06 AM
Don't have time to read this whole thread but looking at your image right now, its very hard to see what is going on. I'm sure you will be clarifying things more though. I think the composition is very powerful and I like what you have done so far. Very talented you are! (Yoda speak hehe ;) )

10-28-2005, 07:54 AM
nice flow in your sketches.
I'm curious to see the final pict.
Keep it up !

10-28-2005, 08:03 AM
hello slav... nice progression..i'm very curious about how you will work on the machines textures..Maybe try to work on left arm...he seems to me too much stuck to the body...but i suppose that it's just a previous sketch...anyway, keep goin'on it's really nice so far..:thumbsup:

10-28-2005, 08:09 AM
It looks cool so far... Can't wait to see it finished!

10-28-2005, 08:28 AM
Even everything is in wip theree's a big big potential in this picture. So great composition.

Good luck.

10-28-2005, 02:19 PM
gardogg : hehe no problemo man just keep an eye out and if you can throw a comment myway every now and again ill be happy :) yea its actually easier to see the image in the earilier stages of the image. the reason being for this is the fact taht i was working out the color of of the image and kind of killed all the detail. but i started to render out a bit of the image as you can see yourself in the center there. :P

Arctis, Geci, authentic : thanks for the support guys i cant tell you how much its needed i am loosing my hair here. stressing out with everything but i guess thats every artist for yous :P.

Fiolka Alexandre : funny you mention that ... i was thinking of fixing those up after i am done the background :P i know its in dire need of work but since i came from a treditional background i like to work from the far most elements of the image to the forground. so its a bit more down the line then where i am right now but ill get to it soonn....


OH and i just felt like pointing out the obvious for as sec there... i decided to bring the birdie/dragon back! yay! i feel dumb now. but i really liked that character :rolleyes:

10-28-2005, 09:40 PM
I spotted an update :D Looking good. I do like the changes on the background and the added warm colours on the foreground. The new characters are looking great and i love the gestures of them. A lot more expressive and they seem to have more personality than the older ones. Just watch out for the butt area of the one standing. It looks a bit weird. Other than that, freakin great atmosphere and depth :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

me want a wallpaper when your done :p

be back for more :buttrock:

10-28-2005, 09:42 PM
achie : hehe but i like butts :D females are something else, you know? could stare at it all day long.
and i just realised that i forgot to mention she is supposed to be wearing a dress that ill add later. i have not come up with a good enough design yet. :-\

10-29-2005, 01:33 AM
wow~ I like your Line art and the new one. Cool~can't wait to see the next. Good luck!

10-29-2005, 01:44 AM
wow, what a mood. great work with an amazing amount of details an rich palette of nuances.
hehe, well looking forward to what you make with the dress, if nothing fits, let her butt where it is, i bet it will be an exceptional cute butt, a shame to cover it ;)
keep up your great work, looking fantastic!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

10-29-2005, 01:48 AM
Lookin good slav ;)

Cant wait for the next update.

10-29-2005, 08:46 AM
Privet, Slav! I really like your work! The great atmosphere and excellent colors! That's very interesting to look at your image already right now in spite of lack of many details! Keep it up! I look forward to seeing this progress. Good luck! :)

10-29-2005, 01:32 PM
HEy nice colors. LOve the cloud rendered ! I will keep a eye on this to se the profress

10-29-2005, 02:35 PM

alright since i am goign to have time to answer posts during the week ill leave that for later. as things stand now i put another 18 hours into the image as this is what it looks like right now. next update will be closer to the end of the week depending on if ihave time to work on the blasted thing. i got a cool idea of what to make of the dress... and i still need to work out what's going ot be behind the guy that sitting down... prolly vigitation or fog... donno yet. well i think the image it self will explain more visually then i can with words.

i need to take a break. 8 hour work days 3 days in a row :( i need a girlfriend who lives near by and a social life. oh well since i got neither ill stick with me art.

10-29-2005, 11:52 PM

I like the sense of depth you have added, makes the perspective alot better.

Im just curious where the right figures hand' is going? :P :twisted::twisted::twisted::twisted:

10-30-2005, 06:52 AM
Lovely :thumbsup: :thumbsup: The warm to cool transition is working very well... me like :D Is that a pheonix? if it is, AWESOME. Always a big fan of that bird, hehe. Oh yeah, why did you cover the butt area ;)

Well, no critzs. I see you got everything under control and it's looking really good mate.

10-31-2005, 01:19 AM
you got good sketches i cant say that about most of the entries ive seen honestly i think people underrate sketches.... i like the rhythm of the poses in you color piece....i did look at your challenge page the lil doodles rawk

10-31-2005, 04:10 AM
The gestures of your figures are amazing! Seriously, they flow so well together, and into the piece itself. they act like arrows pointing you into the direction of interest! And interesting this piece is! Visaully it looks great, but I'll wait until you start locking in more of the details to crit specifics. Keep it up!

10-31-2005, 11:39 AM
The great atmosphere and excellent colors. Good luck Slav!

i seriously doubt it.. i am 21 and am no match to you guys. but i try. and shall keep doing so. i have failed misserably so far... but i dont even think of giving up. and if i do go on a dating show ill prolly still get the image done :P i would like to think myself as being good with dead lines.

Hey Slav
Really liking the updates.

I see you moved his/her arm ;) makes him look serene/crazy which is good i suppose :)

Cant wait for more! keep it up

11-12-2005, 04:08 PM
hey man,
all I can see is the previous concepts the last image doesn't load,
but I like the composition,
it's hard to really say anything else now,
but I'll check from work, that usually works :thumbsup:
cheers :)

i guess this is pretty close to the final colors of the image i am still goign to work on the top a bit and maybe change the cloud formations but aside that this is pretty much the near final comp. soon muahaha if i could only get rid of school for a week i could finish sooner :( but as things stand i hope this will be finished if not this weeks then the start of next week. cheers guys.

11-16-2005, 04:40 PM
What a great progress ! Nothing to crit, just be careful to make the left arm of the "crouch" girl readable because in this last picture we could think (with a speed looking not in details) that the arm goes under the dress of the other girl... (because of the shadow of her legs)


11-16-2005, 09:03 PM
sypherr : yea sadly i had to move the arm and it seems many noticed it and i guess it didnt go without reason. :)

Korline : thanks for the suppirt. i suggest if the image doesnt load go to the contest page... or just keep reloading... also try to clear the cache file and the cookies aswell. that should get you on the road to full load freedon :P :buttrock:

authentic : yea it seems many ppl noticed that bit that's why i had to redirect his arm from wrapped around her leg to what it is now... the intention was for them to be intertwined and i would not want to change that... it gives it a very natural look as opposed to the robotic stright lines and so forthe of the other elements which are in the image. even though its a problem that i am well aware off i thnk you for bringing it up once more. since i had to read your post thrice to actually understand the matter which you tried to get across i completely agree with you... wouldnt want to make the image boarder line sexual or hint at anything porn related. :P

any who. thanks you guys ill work on it more and hopfully have more to update with soon :) keep :arteest: :arteest: to everyone :)

At last the edge of all worlds has been reached and the race of man spreads to every corner of every galaxy in the universe. giving grace and best wishes to their co-inhibitors the passive onlookers of Nibrious 58218-338 watch their planet upgraded to a new state of life. a renewed life. They might not necessarily have full understanding of what the ultimate intention of these creatures might be , but the ones whom call themselves man leave one thing clear, peace time will be short lived and adventure will and a chance to prove themselves honorable will come soon enough.

Slav, I am amazed at the amount of detail you put in this image. I've been staring at it for the past 5 minutes and I am amazed... the lights and shadows along with the colors on the lower half of your image are incredible. I will say beautiful composition and excellent executed. One of my favorites in the challenge.

I cant help feel sorry for the characters in the foreground after reading your story. Such an amazing looking world you just dread to imagine what humans would or could do to a place like that... - J
